It is Real Nappy Week! Meaning that this whole week is dedicated to celebrate cloth diapers and promote their benefits to make them more mainstream among new moms. During this week I will be reviewing a different cloth diaper brand each day. Today I will be reviewing Rumparooz.
Background info about Rumparooz:
Rumparooz was founded in 2006 with the birth of Julie and Chad Ekstrom’s second daughter. She had very sensitive skin and could not tolerate disposable diapers. These diapers resulted in a severe rash on the poor baby’s bum. Because there wasn’t a diaper brand that did not cause a rash, Julie decided to make her own. Friends were interested as well and 8 years later, the family-owned company Kanga Care sells Rumparooz all around the world and Julie’s design of the dual (double) inner gusset has a US patent.
Rumparooz is an American based company in Golden, Colorado while products are mainly manufactured responsibly in China, by a Danish-owned (by a cloth diapering mom) Swiss-certified company. This Certificate is a certification specific to the environment and labor conditions that the factory workers work in. Employees are paid fair wages and work in a safe and healthy environment. The factory where Rumparooz cloth diapers are produced is solar-powered and focuses on producing eco-friendly products that are sustainable to the earth.
Rumparooz makes pocket diapers, fitted diapers, and diaper covers.
The pocket is awesome because unlike most pocket diapers, these can be adjusted to 4 sizes instead of the common 3 sizes. This makes sure this system will truly grow with your baby. As I had a very skinny baby, I really liked that I could make these pockets a little smaller than most other pocket diapers. Rumparooz diapers are great for when you have a baby that is on the smaller side.
What I also love about the pocket diapers from Rumparooz is the adorable prints of the diapers. I could really convince my man to use the diaper with the prints that appealed also to him (he was hesitant in the beginning). The space invader diaper really brought a smile to his face.
The fitted diapers from Kangacare are not sold as Rumparooz diapers but as Eco-Posh. I would have loved to test these but as these were a bit out of my budget I had to skip this. They are made with organic cotton and are know to be a great fitted diaper through the night if you have a little one that is a heavy wetter when (s)he sleeps.
I used fitted diapers from a different brand but I love the covers from Rumparooz. Their double gusset will make sure an explosive poopy diaper will remain only in the diapers. It will still be a mess but this cover will keep the mess very local. Just like the pockets, the available prints for the covers are just adorable. My man loved their Tetris print while I am a sucker for cute animal prints.
Rumparooz covers and pockets are one of my favorites for my small baby girl. When you are considering cloth diapers I would recommend buying several systems and brands to find out what you like and what fits your baby and a Rumparooz cover should definitely be added to your stash.
